8 Months of Double Chin

Roxy is queen of the double chin. She's always had it. She gets it from her dad who get's it from Grandpa Karl. 

Roxy crawls, pulls herself up on her knees, sucks her thumb when she's tired, demands to be moving (usually carried but the stroller is her favorite), cries a lot, chews on everything, hates food and naps and most recently the car. 

Her tongue is always out and about... it's super cute :)

Since it's 'fall' she's been eating gagging on leaves all the time. 

She's so little and petite. Less than 17 pounds. 
I'm guessing she'll have blondish hair... her eyebrows are super light. Almost  like a strawberry blonde color. I guess we'll find out in a few years at the rate it's growing 😆

I Can't Help It

This is the 5th January we've lived here and I think this is the first time we're getting it right. 

Even though the days are shorter, play as much as you can. 

I find any excuse to go outside. I really love to be outdoors... that's why summertime slays me here... but I'm getting the most out of Winter this year 🙌

Every time I go mountain biking I tell myself NOT to stop and take a picture. But I can't help it!! Combine three passions and I can't resist!

Plus, you have to stop when your water bottle rattles out of your bike. 

These are iPhone beauties but there was a mountain biker guy out there taking pictures with his Canon... glad other people make me feel normal :)

Coons Bluff

After the Superstition Mountains and the Goldfield Ghost town we had McDonalds (the ultimate health food in a very ritzy part of town... kidding!) and headed to the river.

 On our way there, I saw a sign for a 'recreational area' parking lot we've never been to. Coons Bluff.

I'm pretty sure I said "this is so pretty" 400 times. It was so cool!


You can camp there on Friday and Saturday nights and there were a couple families there. 

It was PRETTY!!!!

It's always nice to see the wild horses too. 

We weren't there for long before it started to sprinkle. Everett and I kept playing. Breckie isn't a big fan of the rain so she went back to the car with Roxy and Jake. 

Everett and I kept exploring.

We were down by the water when we heard thunder boom SO loud. It was fantastic! Right after the third big boom, it started pouring rain!

(We have the EXACT same 'it's raining' face!)

we ran back to the car and then headed home. We had so much fun on Saturday and we got to see some really pretty places.

Goldfield Ghost Town

2 seconds drive from the Superstition mountains was the Goldfield Ghost Town. We stopped to check it out. 

It was pretty cute. 

We didn't go in any shops... Breckie and Jake did get locked up though. 

It was fun to just walk around and check things out.

It was turning out to be quite the fun Saturday exploring nearby AZ. 

Roxy was the best kid, for sure!

Everett was really good too. Breckie... she was almost put up for adoption...
